"Reframing Pilgrimage" argues that sacred travel is just one of the 21st century's many forms of cultural mobility. The contributors consider the meanings of pilgrimage in Christian, Mormon, Hindu, Islamic and Sufi traditions as well as in secular contexts, and they create a new theory of pilgrimage as a form of voluntary displacement. This voluntary displacement helps to constitute cultural meaning in a world constantly "en route." Pilgrimage, which works both on global economic and individual levels, is recognized as a highly creative and politically charged force intimately bound up in economic and cultural systems.
